STARKVILLE | MSU is hoping to boost its sack total this year, having recorded only 19 last season. A big part of that effort will be senior defensive end Denico Autry, who had 4.0 sacks last season. He’s also trying to become a more complete player, and we caught up with him today to talk about that. Autry is also battling a thumb injury but doesn’t seem too concerned about it.
We also spoke with junior tackle Curtis Virges, who said he’s trying to become a better player by focusing more on technique. He’s a fourth-year player, and coaches are demanding more out of the West Point product this season.
